Dominion reported taking South Oxford Station out of service Tuesday for unexpected repairs and said that at this point it does not know exactly how long the repairs will take. Due to high line pressures, producers in bubble 4413 were required to reduce their deliveries by 50% until further notice.

Trunkline said it has changed the dates for an outage of its Vermilion system in South Louisiana to April 3-5. Six receipt point meters must shut in while work is done between Gate 102 (North Freshwater Bayou) and Gate 101 (Cow Island) on the 16-inch diameter 210A-100 Line.

Saying it is a change to previously posted maintenance schedules, El Paso plans to take Line 1100 from Eunice Station to Pecos River Station out of service for 10 hours Thursday. Eunice A plant will be taken off-line to accommodate the pipeline work, causing a capacity reduction in the affected segment of 150 MMcf/d from a base capacity of 385 MMcf/d in nomination Cycles 1, 2 and 3, El Paso said, adding that if all goes according to plan, the capacity reductions should not be in place for cycle 4. During the Eunice A shutdown, El Paso will be unable to make deliveries to the DGPMHOBBS point.

Southern Natural Gas said it will begin about two weeks of maintenance on the Mississippi Canyon 397 Line, which is offshore Louisiana upstream of the Toca Compressor Station, on or about April 1. Southern will declare force majeure for the project and will be unable to accept nominations at the Mississippi Canyon 397 receipt point.
